Track: People and Leadership
Volumes have been written about what an agile organization looks like, but less has been said about what managers do to build and sustain an organization transitioning to agile. This talk will explain what the CBC’s management team is discovering during our agile transformation, the many forks in the road that we had to navigate (e.g.: organizational structure, cultural change and building trust with our stakeholders), and how the job of a manager evolved as the organization we lead changed. You’ll hear about the CBC’s ongoing four year journey and how we continue to collaborate, learn and improve.
Co-presenters will be:
CBC/Radio-Canada is Canada's national public broadcaster and one of its largest cultural institutions. CBC Digital is the country’s biggest digital startup, taking on the challenges of innovating how media is made, sent and received. We are trying new things. We are growing. As an entity of our own. As a voice for our country. As a team.
My role within Digital Operations at CBC is to help individuals and teams appreciate and achieve an agile mindset. Working closely with the Digital Operations Management Team I focus on reinforcing the potential of collaboration, learning and continuous improvement across the department.
